Oakdale Montessori Daycare
Hi parents, welcome to Oakdale Montessori Daycare, my licensed family child care program in Olney. I’m the owner as well as the lead teacher and caregiver. I’m a mother of 2 children myself and I have 22 years of child care experience! I also have a background in teaching (Associates’ degree in Education) and I am also CPR and first-aid certified. I provide child care and early education for babies starting at 2 months old and for toddlers and preschoolers up to 5 years old. However, I will provide more than just daycare: as a Montessori-inspired home daycare, my little students will also have many opportunities to be academically stimulated. I can offer flexible options to accommodate working families. I provide both full-time and part-time daycare, as well as drop-in care. My daycare hours are from 6:30 am to 6:00 pm, Monday through Friday. Oakdale Montessori Daycare is in the Oakdale neighborhood, near the Oakdale Church and Olney Manor Recreational Park in Olney, MD. My home is conveniently located right off Georgia Ave, a few minutes away from the Intercounty Connector (route 200). Please call or send a message through CareLuLu to schedule a visit of my daycare. I look forward to meeting your little one :)
Maryland Child Services
At Maryland Child Services Inc. Centers, our program and academic curriculum are founded on our philosophy or nurturing well-rounded, balanced individuals. We integrate age appropiate academic, creative, social and physical activities throughout the day. We recognize that each child is unique, and our program hast built in flexibility to address each child's strengths and weaknesses, as we prepare them for kindergarden. We daily explore new subjects, work on art and music project, examine the world about us. We believe pre-school will have a profound effect on the social well-being of the child for years to come. For this reason, we emphasize social activities, such as eating together, collaborating and problem-solving on project in groups, and outdoor play time. Our staff interact with and engage the children in a wide range of activities. We recognize that the field of early childhood education is a dynamic, evolving subject and best-practices and new approaches emerge with it. Consequently, we require our staff to annually attend early childhood education related workshops, conferences, and or complete colleges course work in order to stay current with new research findings and be able to confidently implement them into the classroom. We know that young children learn best by doing, so we are hands-on in our classroom activities. And finally, it is only through a strong partnership with a child's family that we can help the child achieve his/her goals, so we further stress the importance of maintaining open and candid communication at all times.

The Children In The Shoe

The key to successful learning experiences is to figure out what... interests your child. We help your child develop a love of learning. Active play is at the heart of children’s learning. We encourage them to observe, explore, take things apart, build, create, draw, and see what they can find out.

Sandy Spring Friends School

Sandy Spring Friends School is a pre-K through 12 Quaker coed college... preparatory day school with optional boarding program in the Upper School. The Lower School years are a time of exploration and discovery. We view our students as active participants in their learning. We seek daily to create an environment in which children can follow their curiosity into experimentation and engagement, applying their energy to full participation in collaborative learning, hands-on activities and opportunities for academic enrichment. Our students learn best when creative thinking, active listening and positive interaction are reinforced in the classroom and at play. By asking questions and seeking answers, each child remains receptive to taking ownership of all aspects of learning. In order to support their growing self-advocacy, we offer a nurturing and responsive approach to instruction. All children pass through cognitive stages of growth, yet differ in the rates and patterns of that growth. We acknowledge that individual factors such as culture, interests, beliefs and learning styles contribute to these developmental differences and enrich our Lower School student body. At each grade level, we strive to provide time, appropriate challenge, positive experiences and acceptance. While we value the products of learning, we place even greater value on the ongoing process of learning and the development of higher level thinking skills and deeper conceptual understanding. Our hope for students is that they discover, and continue to rediscover, the joy of learning throughout their lives. We believe in the value of establishing a foundation for interdependence, as well as independence, by emphasizing cooperation, assertion, responsibility, empathy and self-control. In keeping with our Quaker belief of that of God in everyone, we honor the unique gifts within each child. We focus on every student’s academic, physical, social, emotional and spiritual growth. By emphasizing the individual strengths of our students, we nurture their sense of self-worth and give them the confidence to take risks within a safe and supportive environment. Lower School students are encouraged to be responsible and responsive listeners and fully present members of a community. Through active listening and interactive modeling, they demonstrate their understanding and readiness to learn. By allowing every person to have a voice and a chance to shine, they recognize that each of their fellow students should be revered for their ideas, experiences and expertise. Our dedication to celebrating diversity, nurturing awareness, and inspiring compassion among our students sustains our community of global citizens. Through our emphasis on peaceful conflict resolution, community service and a deep commitment to environmental stewardship, our Lower School students become involved and invested in making a positive impact on the world community.

It is our goal that our students will be ready for kindergarten from the foundation of learning they receive at the ECS.
